This is THE perfect dock/moss song.. sorry I’m giving it to y’all at the end of the weekend. ‘Transits’ by Bonobo is one of my favourite songs of 2013 so far. I was having a great conversation with a few friends the other night about music production and what makes a good song (of course it is quite subjective). We agreed that a great beat is one thing, but when you can add subtleties to a great beat you’ve produced a true piece of art. This is something that Bonobo does so well, and in my opinion, makes him one of the best producers of our time. Listen closely to what’s going on ‘behind the scenes’ … also kudos to Szjerdene for her beautiful voice.
Karen Marie Ørsted, MØ, is quickly making a name for herself. The Denmark based artist recently released an awesome new single, Waste Of Time. Since it is difficult to search the internet for an artist with an ‘Ø’ in her name, I figure I’ll save you the trouble and post the music video for you below:
Mayer Hawthorne recently released his latest single, Her Favorite Song. This track is an addictive soul/funk duet (featuring Jessie Ware), and will be featured in Hawthorne’s upcoming album, Where Does This Door Go. This album will be Mayer’s third full-length album and will be dropping on July 16th. Check out the [interesting] trailer here.
American progressive/electro house duo Case & Point at it again with this absolute banger ‘Upgrade’. They are known for their anthem beats such as their remix of Doctor P’s track ‘Bulletproof’. Popping syths, unreal breakdowns, and a flowing melody will make you undoubtedly want to go rave after listening this beauty!
Well here’s an awesome remix of Phoenix’s track ‘Trying To Be Cool’. We were lucky enough to receive a message from The Chainsmokers telling us a little bit about the motivation behind this remix. “Our goal has always been to create music that maintains the energy of the progressive house sound, has the depth and authentic feeling of indie music but also has the mainsteam appeal of pop music, and there is no better band in the world to drive that goal home than Phoenix. Their sound is so unique yet appealing without compromise, that presented the opportunity to do a remix we thought there no better band to work with. Blending Thomas Mars’ voice and the bands infectious instrumentation with our style production just came so easily and vwala we think we came up with a truly fun remix for everyones summer that takes the song a place the phoenix sound was meant for….” Enjoy my friends.
